ROSELLE PARK, NJ — Borough Clerk Andrew Casais reminded Roselle Park voters that they should have already received their ballots in the mail from the county, during Thursday’s meeting of the Borough Council.
Casais said his office was available to field questions from Roselle Park residents who may be confused about the voting process this year and when to expect the final results. Due to a majority of people voting by mail this year, the election winners will not be announced as quickly as usual.
He pointed out that votes can begin to be counted ten days before Election Day and even though early results may begin coming in that evening those numbers will not be finalized until they are certified once all votes are counted.
“There will be no meaningful results of the election on election night and I’d be willing to bet that there’ll be no meaningful results to the elections that week,” said Casais.
Governor Murphy will certify the election results by executive order on November 20, more than two weeks after election day. Mayor Joe Signorello III pointed out that the county had some preliminary results available the night of the June primaries.
According to Casais, the county has made no guarantees regarding the speed at which results will be made public this election.
